IKEA Supply AG of Switzerland is recalling about 159,000 bowls, plates and mugs sold in the U.S. and Canada.

The bowls, plates and mugs can become brittle and break, causing hot food or liquid to leak out, posing a burn hazard.

The firm is aware of 123 reports of breakage worldwide, including four reports of injuries, two of which required medical attention. Most of the injuries were burns due to hot contents leaking out. This includes one incident -- without injury -- in the U.S.

This recall involves the HEROISK and TALRIKA bowls, plates and mugs made from PLA (Polylactic acid or polylactide) material from renewable sources.

The bowls, plates and mugs were sold in a variety of colors, including yellow, pink and blue.

The article name (“HEROISK” or “TALRIKA”), supplier number “23348,” “Made in Taiwan” and “PLA” are molded into the bottom of each item.

The bowls, plates and mugs were sold at IKEA stores nationwide and online at www.ikea-usa.com from August 2019, through May 2021, for between $4 and $12.

What to do

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled bowls, plates, and mugs and return them to any IKEA store for a full refund.
